HoYoverse issued a warning to Genshin Impact, Tears of Themis, and Honkai Impact 3rd players who use the Twitter login option. Due to upcoming Twitter API changes, it warned of relying on the account to login. On both the Genshin Impact, Tears of Themis, and Honkai Impact 3rd Twitter accounts in multiple languages, it recommended binding an email address to HoYoVerse accounts.
The announcements on both accounts noted that HoYoVerse isn’t entirely sure yet how the API change will affect the Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd Twitter login options. However, it noted that it is better to err on the side of caution and add an email. Here’s one of the notices.
“Login With Twitter Account” Service Adjustment Notice
We are in the process of confirming the impact of the Twitter API adjustments on game account login and the corresponding resolutions.
Please stay tuned for further announcements regarding this situation~#HonkaiImpact3rd pic.twitter.com/FlPNFuCfFf

On February 2, 2023, Twitter announced it would begin charging for Twitter API access. This could mean apps and bots that post updates, including ones for say government or educational services, would stop working unless their creators would pay for continued access. This could affect games that access the Twitter API as well.
Starting February 9, we will no longer support free access to the Twitter API, both v2 and v1.1. A paid basic tier will be available instead 🧵
